Articles from The Tally Room
6:00pm – Polls have just closed in Victoria. I won’t be updating this post regularly tonight as I have another commitment, but will occasionally post summaries. Feel free to use the comments section as an open thread to discuss the results.
If you want to follow the results can I suggest one of these options:
I’ve done a video for my day job explaining to voters how they can vote below the line to avoid the risks of electing someone they don’t support, which could happen if they vote above the line.
In this week’s podcast Ben is joined by Tom Clement from Geeklections and Tim Colebatch.
We discussed the Victorian upper house race in depth, followed by a summary of the Victorian state election campaign.
Today is one year since the announcement of the result in the marriage law postal survey, and I have a special podcast episode focusing on that process.
I interviewed Simon Copland and Dr Liz Allen on Tuesday at a conference about the anniversary at the ANU.
The group voting tickets were released on Sunday, showing how each party will direct its preferences for votes cast above-the-line in each region for the Victorian Legislative Council.
For those still catching up, this is basically the same system used for the Senate up to 2013 (although it is easier to cast a formal below-the-line vote if you wish to opt out). The upper house consists of forty members, with five elected for each of the eight regions.
Nominations closed today for the Victorian state election. In this post I’ll run through the numbers on how many people are running, and from what parties, and where.
Thanks to Nick Casmirri for doing a lot of research in pulling together information about these candidates.
Nominations will close tomorrow for registered political parties running in the Victorian state election, with independents having until Friday to nominate.
In this episode, I talk to El Gibbs and Paddy Manning about the Victorian election, with a particular focus on inner-city Greens contests.
This was the first episode recorded at the studios of 2SER radio in Sydney. Thanks to them for the help with the show.
Now that we’re past Wentworth, I wanted to revisit the election guides I have posted for the federal and Victorian state elections.
There are a whole bunch of extra candidates on both guides (particularly Victoria), and I have also listed all the candidates in spreadsheets if you are interested.
Particular thanks to Nick Casmirri who has helped track down a lot of extra candidates.
